Are you sick of the treadmill, recumbent bike or elliptical cardio workout? Would you like a cardio routine that didn’t require a lot of jumping or jiggling around? Then you’ll be relieved to know an option is available that most anyone can do. I’ll give you a hint: it’s not just for building muscle.

Squat Club: Get Your Cardio Workout Right NOW

Most weight training can be cardio training! Isn’t that nuts?! Yeah, who knew you didn’t need a treadmill or fool around with a jump rope? Before you dig in, familiarize yourself with the first blog post where I cover heart rate ranges for an effective cardio workout (CLICK HERE). Furthermore, I discuss how to pace yourself in the last blog post (CLICK HERE).

One of my favorite exercises for cardio training is the bodyweight squat. I’d recommend you master the form before you use squats for a cardio workout. Once you have a hang of it, pump out 100s of squats at a time to REALLY get your cardio workout.

Bodyweight Squats


  1. Stand up straight with your feet placed shoulder-width apart.
  2. Bend your knees and butt 90°, coming down to a seated position.
  3. Press through your heels, keep your big toes lifted and stand up.
  4. For more of a challenge, try to explode up from the bottom position, jumping off the ground as high as you can.

Stay tuned to and remember to subscribe to this blog, so you get post updates. I’ll catch you on Tuesday. Till later, rule your day!

  1. I enjoy what you guys tend to be up too. This kind of clever work
    and coverage! Keep up the awesome works guys I’ve added you
    guys to our blogroll.

  2. To illustrate, a report in Journal of Investigative Dermatology points out that the skin can actually use circulating cholesterol to make the hormone androgen. Laser resurfacing can be done in the dermatologist office instead of a hospital so that provides a much greater financial savings.
